He said plainly that he is NOT the best rider. He said he doesn't even have natural talent at training horses or riding, but he's good at training people. That's why he's a clinician and not a horse trainer.
As for the ego... I'd agree haha. But that's why I enjoy listening to him, he seems very sure of himself and he's hilarious. I'd have a huge ego too if I were him.
Edit: He didn't say that in the video, but he said it on his tour.
